Malcesine Castle

Lake Garda , Italy

Wedding Venue Information

You will find the enchanting and captivating Malcesine Castle perched on a cliff overlooking Lake Garda in the Lombardy region of Italy. With the castle perched high above the lake, you will be spoilt with the panoramic views of the lake and the backdrop of the mountains. Malcesine is a small picturesque town situated on the east shore of Lake Garda. Malcesine boasts a fishing harbour filled with cafes and ice cream parlours where you can enjoy authentic Italian ice cream. Tiny cobbled streets meander through the centre, full of Italian cafes, restaurants and bistros, making it the ideal location for an Italian wedding. Take advantage of the cable car up to the heights of Monte Baldo and the pleasure cruises across the lake to other historical towns. Enjoy a stroll along the floral lined promenade or soak up the sunshine on the many shore beaches. Be sure to visit the fifteenth-century Palazzo dei Capitani, originally the headquarters of the Venetian rulers of the area, the Capitani Del Lago. The area is filled with Italian history and has an enchanting feel making it a desirable wedding destination.

Weddings at the Malcesine Castle

Whatever wedding package you are looking for, you can be sure it will look stunning when you say "I do" at the Malcesine Castle. This 12th Century Italian Castle is rich in medieval history and houses its own museums. For your wedding ceremony, the Malcesine Castle offers you two options. One option is to hold the ceremony at the top of the Rivellino Tower, where the outdoor terrace overlooks Lake Garda on one side, and the lush green mountains on the other, while taking in the rooftops of the pretty village below. The second option is the Casermetter, a large hall with a balcony on the lake where the knights of the castle once lived. The castle is very scenic, situated high up on the hill above the lake, making for great wedding photographs. It has a feel of a rich heritage of ancient traditions, which only adds to the romantic ambience of the day. You have the option of a gazebo, and the ceremony will have a floral centrepiece for the table and two chairs dressed with ribbons and flowers.

Why Choose the Malcesine Castle

For a wedding ceremony in a stunning location with a romantic Italian heritage, the Malcesine Castle is definitely the right option. Ideally situated on a hill overlooking the lake and village, it is within easy reach of an array of restaurants for your wedding reception and hotels for you and your guests to spend a few days relaxing before your big day. It is also the perfect location for your honeymoon. Some people choose a harp to play at the wedding ceremony, which is very fitting, given the castle's surroundings.
